Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will be heading to Washington, D.C. to talk Common Core at the American Principles Project’s annual State Lunch on Thursday.
APP is a conservative advocacy group that largely focuses on social issues, notably opposing abortion and same-sex marriage.
The group also opposes the Common Core education standards that Jindal has frequently struck out against.
APP is Jindal’s latest move toward courting social conservatives. He’s met with pastors in Iowa, held a prayer rally and spoke to an anti-abortion rally on LSU’s campus and traveled to Naples, Fla. to address Catholic business leaders. Jindal, who can’t seek re-election because of term limits, has been weighing a run for president in 2016.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, another Republican reportedly eyeing a run for the 2016 nomination, will be the keynote speaker at APP’s Red, White & Blue Gala later Thursday evening.
